New York, NY: Avon Books, ND (2000s). Twelfth Printing. Softcover. Pocket paperback. (iv) + 124pp. Glossy pictorial card covers. This copy SIGNED AND WITH AN ORIGINAL CARTOON-LIKE DRAWING AND INSCRIPTION BY LARRY K. BARNES on the first page (half-title). Larry K. Barnes (1952-2001) known as "Kozmo" to his friends, was - with Peter Lavenda and James Wasserman - one of the trio who achieved the publication of the "Necronomicon", with Barnes being largely responsible for the mechanics of the publication of the book. Barnes was fascinated by UFOs and delighted in drawing aliens and alien landscapes. The first he did here is shows an alien face with next to it the words "Just as the others ignored this warning, so shall you human. So shall you." He has also written "House of Tzob (?) 733, "El Koz 51052) and a few other words and sigils on the page. Next to a printed reference to his name - L. K. Barnes - on p. 3 he has penciled "Kozmo" and a number. The book is a guide to the use of the seals of Marduk that are given in the "Necronomicon" itself. The "Necronomicon Spellbook" was first published by Herman Slater of the famous - and now long defunct - Magickal Childe Publishing and Bookstore in New York, under the title "Necronomicon Report" in 1981. It was republished by Avon books as "Necronomicon Spellbook" in 1998 - this is a twelfth printing of that Avon books edition. Loosely inserted a post card for "Alienated ... A Group Art Show" that was probably placed in the book by the owner. A bit of light rubbing to cover edges, pages a little toned, tiny tear to top edge of rear cover, otherwise a tight, clean near-Fine copy. Item #69578
